Four flour mills in the Dominican
Republic are expanding to meet new demand in Haiti after the January 2010
earthquake destroyed its only flour mill. USW stepped up with trade and
technical support to show how U.S. wheat could help the mills respond and
grow well into the future. As a result, sales of HRW, SRW and HRS to the
Dominican Republic increased 31 percent in 2010/11, with much of the extra
flour moving to help ease at least some suffering and hunger in Haiti.
